Easy way to dispose tyres?
School turns into dumping ground
Lack of space has forced the City Municipal Corporation to dump waste tyres at the Corporation Elementary School in Swarnapuri here.
The corporation has initiated a campaign against dengue fever. Workers were collecting obsolete and unused tyres, unused plastic materials from house and from road sides. Over 4 tonnes of tyres were collected from the corporation limits. Disposal of tyres posed a problem as they cannot be burned or dumped in the open. Hence large pits were dug at Erumapalayam dumping yard to dispose them. Facing severe space constraints, now these tyres were being kept in a room on the school premises on Monday.
